Pregnant women who get the COVID-19 vaccine are not more likely to experience a miscarriage. Over 200,000 pregnant women have received the vaccine without any safety concerns.  The vaccines do not contain live virus, so being vaccinated does not pose a risk to your baby. 

Pregnant women who become infected with COVID-19 are at an increased risk of experiencing severe illnesses and pregnancy complications, including hospitalization and death and delivering severely premature babies that end up in the neonatal intensive care unit.
